It's important to think through your layers...I had a friend who thought that if pantyhose kept you toasty underneath (which they do) that a leotard would be just perfect. She forgot that hers only came off from the shoulders.

I will feel that way tomorrow when I get everything toted to the storage unit that is cluttering my living room. I've been busy collecting things together for the BIG garage sale for Relay For Life, Cancer Research.

I've also been going through the pantry and getting rid of (I take it to work) the food items I can no longer eat...I have all kinds of space all the sudden.

I just got two annoying computer problems fixed with the help of TaxLady and Damian.

It's so nice to have everything back to normal.

I knew if I posted my problem here someone would help, and I was right. It's less than 24 hours and both problems are fixed. No more frustration there.

What a great place DC is!

We just found out that James is still in the running for the job he interviewed for a month ago. The job is here in town, but they are still discussing it up at Corporate in Pennsylvania. Most CAD jobs around here are up in Charlotte, about 40 miles away, but this is between 3-4 miles from home, and the difference in gas costs would be tremendous!

The other good news is that we got some money, which will mostly be used for bills, but we will be able to splurge a little and go out to eat on our anniversary Monday.
